LeBron James, Ryan Coogler to team up for 'Space Jam' sequel

Adjust Comment Print

It looks like Space Jam 2 is very much a thing.

Blown away by Ryan Coogler's work on "Black Panther", LeBron James is teaming up with the director/producer on the long-anticipated next "Space Jam" movie.

If you read the numbers in order, they read 1/23/2021. The plot behind Space Jam 2 isn't known at this time, but one can assume it will involve James teaming with Bugs Bunny and company for more basketball hijinks. So far, no word has been give by SpringHill Entertainment about a release date, but fans were told when the sequel will move into production. Considering Michael Jordan was accompanied by several other National Basketball Association players in the original "Space Jam", it stands to reason the same will hold true for James.

Any deal with Riyadh is likely to need assurances the kingdom can count on Pakistan's support against Iran, analysts said. As part of the cost-cutting initiative, he had announced the auction of surplus PM House vehicles.

"The Space Jam collaboration is so much more than just me and the Looney Tunes getting together and doing this movie". Rumors of a sequel starring James have run rampant for several years, with a number of different directors and writers having been attached to the project.

Of course, James supplanting Jordan as the star of the new movie invariably adds to the debate over which of the two should be viewed as the greatest player of all-time. Coogler is a filmmaker in demand, having taken Black Panther to box office glory. "And I think Ryan did that for a lot of people". While it remains to be seen what National Basketball Association stars other than LeBron will be featured in Space Jam 2, we now know who will be directing and producing the film.

"I loved his vision", James said. "For Ryan to be able to bring that to kids, it's wonderful", the soon-to-be Los Angeles Laker said.
